Lady Isabella Sackvile and the Earl of Thanet.
"To the Right Honourable the Lords assembled
"The humble Petition of Phillipp Earl of Pembrooke & Mountgomery, and of Anne Countess
of Pembroke & Mountgomery his Wife, in
Behalf of her Daughter the Lady Isabella
"That Richard late Earl of Dorsett deceased, being
heretofore seised in his Demesne, as of Fee, of and in
the several Manors of Bolebrooke, Bassetts, Tigh alias
St. Tigh, Chartneys alias Charkneyes, Willmington,
Frogfirle, Sharnfold, and Peeling, with their and every
of their Rights, Members, and Appurtenances, in the
County of Sussex, did settle the same, amongst other
Things, upon your Petitioner the Countess of Pembrooke, for her Life, as Part of her Jointure.
"That, the said Earl of Dorsett dying without Issue
Male of his Body, the said Manors and Premises
descended and came in Reversion to the Lady Margarett Sackvill, sithence married to the Earl of Thanett,
and to the Lady Isabella Sackvill, as Daughters and
Coheirs of the said late Earl of Dorsett.
"That, upon the Marriage of the said Lady Margarett with the now Earl of Thanett, by Articles in
Writing, dated the 17th of April, in the Fifth Year
of our now Sovereign Lord King Charles, between
Nicholas late Earl of Thanett of the One Part, and
the Countess of Pembroke your Petitioner by the
Name of the Countess of Dorsett of the other Part, it
was agreed, amongst other Things, that your Petitioner could convey the Interest and present Possession
of the Capital Messuage called Bolebrooke Place, and
of the Park and Demesne Lands there, and of the said
Lands, Tenements, Manors, and Hereditaments, called
Bolebrooke, Bassetts, Tigh alias (fn. *) St. Tigh, Chartneyes
cum Golbins, to the Lord Tuffton, now Earl of Thanett,
and the Lady Margarett his Wife, in Possession;
which was done accordingly by your Petitioner.
"And the said Earl of Thanett hath ever since received the Profits of the said last mentioned Manors
and Premises, the same being of the Yearly Value
of Four Hundred Nineteen Pounds, Nineteen Shillings, Three Pence, besides the Park, and hath cut
down Woods growing upon the Premises of very great
Value; by which Means, the said Lands and Manors
so assigned to the said Earl of Thanett are become
less valuable to be sold than the other Manors beforementioned, which have been in the Possession of
your Petitioner the Countess of Pembrooke, the Woods
whereof have been carefully preserved.
"That it was ever meant and intended, that the Inheritance of the Manors assigned in Possession by
your Petitioner to the Earl of Thanett should go to
the said Earl of Thanett, and the Lady Margarett the
Countess of Thanett, and to the Heirs of the Lady
Margarett; and that the Inheritance of the other
Manors and Lands should go to the Lady Isabella
Sackvill the Younger Daughter, and her Heirs.
"Yet the said Earl of Thanett, having much wasted
the Woods growing upon the said Manors so assigned
unto him in Possession, would now have all the said
Manors cast in Hotch-potch, and some Division made
thereof, by which Means he will have as great Share
of those Manors the Woods whereof have been preserved as the Lady Issabella shall have; and, unless
such Division may be made, he refuseth to make
an Estate in the Manors now in your Petitioner's
Possession to the Lady Isabella Sackvill and her Heirs;
howbeit the said Lady Isabella, having now accomplished the Age of Twenty-one Years, is able and
willing to release all Right of the Manors now in
the said Earl's Possession, so as the said Earl and
Countess will release all their Right unto the said Lady
Isabella in the said Manors in your Petitioner's Possession.
"Now, for that the Parties concerned herein are
so nearly allied in Blood, it is humbly desired from your Lordships, that, by your
Honourable Mediation, the Estates in the said
respective Manors may be so settled, by mutual Releases, or otherwise, as shall be advised
by Learned Counsel, without Suit in Law;
but, if the Earl of Thanett shall refuse so to
do, that then your Lordships will give Leave
to the said Lady Isabella to proceed against
the said Earl of Thanett by such Course in
Law or Equity as shall be advised by Counsel.
"And your Petitioners, &c."
Dr. Johnson to give an Accompt of the Tithes of Whitechapel, for a Maintenance to be provided for a Minister for the Hamlet of Wapping.
"Upon the Petition of the Inhabitants of the Hamlet at Wapping; complaining, That Mr. Dr. Johnson,
Incumbent of Whitechappell and Wapping, refuseth to
bring in his Books of Rates, Receipts, Duties, and
Tithes, of the said Parish and Hamlet, to the Assembly of Divines, who are to provide a sit and able
Minister for the same Hamlet, and to appoint what
reasonable Allowance he shall have out of the Tithes
and Duties of the said Hamlet: It is Ordered,
&c. in Performance of a former Order of this House,
of the 18th of June last past, That the said Mr. Dr.
Johnson shall forthwith bring before the said Assembly, or some of them, such Books concerning the
Premises, or so many thereof as they shall think fit,
whereby a fitting Allowance may be made to such
Minister as shall be appointed by them to officiate
in the said Hamlet; and that the which Books, being
perused as aforesaid, shall be safely returned to him
the said Mr. Dr. Johnson."
House adjourned till 9a, Wednesday next.
